Site set up dreamweaver cs5 to wordpress (3 posts)

    Hi there,

    First post here, it is just a small question.

    So I have my site completely set up on DWcs5 and it is completely functional on the localhost. Now I want to move my site from just this localhost to the web. Instead of getting hosting can I still just put it back up onto wordpress so it is a 'http://www.abc123.wordpress.com' website? Or must I find my own hosting now that I have stuffed with its layout :P

    The reason I ask this is I am trying to do a Site Setup for my Blog and it asks for my
    FTP ADDRESS
    USERNAME
    PASSWORD

    Which set of details do I enter? my wordpress.org ones or my wordpress.com ones?

    I am kinda confused :(

    Thanks heaps girls and guys :)

    You cannot upload or change any files on a WordPress.COM site (and these forums do not support WordPress.COM sites).

    So to move your own version, yes, you will need hosting and then see:

    FTP is set up through the hosting company - it's not part of WP - and FTP info is not the same as your WP info.

    WPyogi,

    Thank you for clearing that up, I now understand that wordpress.com is a blog site and wordpress.org is the platform so to speak.

    Thanks v much.
